MAFS in hot water after ‘insulting the LGBT community’

Married at First Sight viewers have accused the show’s producers and cast member, Lauren Huntriss, of making a mockery of LGBT issues.

On Monday night’s episode, the 31-year-old makeup artist told her husband, Matt Bennett, that she ‘used to be a lesbian’ – and the revelation sparked outrage.

Media expert, Nicole Reaney of InsideOut Public Relations, told Daily Mail Australia this week that viewer backlash is warranted. 

‘These kinds of ‘revelations’ have been used in other reality shows as a tactic to hook in an audience,’ she said.

‘Audiences are getting tired and offended by these attempts. A little more consideration needs to be taken these days to ensure language aligns with societal values.

‘While Channel Nine will bounce back from this – they will just wear the wave of this backlash.’
